The real draw here, for me, was the view. The heritage centre did not have much in it, although the man running it was really lovely and passionate about the place. It's run by donation. The views from above the heritage centre are gorgeous in...More

If one could put a viewpoint in the most lucrative place, fill it with enthusiastic, knowledgeable volunteers and a plethora of information about the surrounding area and wildlife this would be it. The saying the best things come in small packages was made for this.
